The B.R.E.A.K (Baton Rouge Ensuring Available Kits) Program has been designed to help in the aid and support of disadvantaged youth in developing countries. The intent is to partner with other Greater Baton Rouge soccer organizations, schools, non-profit organizations and communities to provide soccer uniforms and gear. By linking equipment donation to on-the-ground programs that develop youth soccer skills, promote health and education, B.R.E.A.K is contributing to stronger, healthier communities throughout the world.
Baton Rouge Soccer Club will officially launch the B.R.E.A.K. program June 13, 2012. The program will initially strictly center itself around the collection and distribution of uniforms with the hopes that in due time the program will open up to the collection and distribution of shoes, equipment and so on.
Baton Rouge Soccer would like to use the B.R.E.A.K, program to help achieve more and more community outreach in North Baton Rouge, underprivileged communities throughout the U.S. and across the globe.
This program will also allow us to pass down old uniforms to those that need them. This year all competitive teams will be getting new uniforms and the old kits will get a new life to players that sorely need them.
The ability to help provide for families overseas begins with the travels of the Campbell family. The Campbell family are parents of Thomas Campbell who plays within the BRSC Program. Their travels abroad will help to establish a relationship with the Maasaai people in the Ngoro Ngoro Highlands near Misigio (Northern Tanzania). The BRSC B.R.E.A.K. program is hoping to provide the Campbell family with enough uniforms for 2 teams (Home and Away). Please consider donating your old BRSC uniforms to help spread the joy of soccer to this amazingly beautiful and far away place.
BRSC is very excited about this opportunity as well as having the chance to make a national and global impact to those in need. Stay tuned for all the news surrounding the B.R.E.A.K. program.
